Colorless and Odorless, Carbon Monoxide Buildup Is a Real Problem
How safe is your laundry room? Many homeowners are familiar with the threat of fires due to improperly maintained dryers, but did you know about a secondary, and very deadline, threat from carbon monoxide? The fumes that a gas dryer emits are dangerous. If these fumes are not able to escape through the vent, carbon monoxide will enter your house.
Colorless, odorless, tasteless and difficult to detect, it can cause flu-like effects and even death. To make sure that your family is safe from this threat, you should have carbon monoxide detectors installed and you should also have your dryer’s vent checked regularly. If your dryer is powered by gas, you should also have a professional periodically check your gas line to make sure that it is in good condition and that there are no worn or broken areas through which gas can escape.
Dryer vents clogged with lint or obstructed by bird nests prevent exhaust fumes from properly exiting the vent line. Instead, when the line is obstructed, harmful gases can build up inside the home, creating a serious risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
It’s necessary to have your dryer vent cleaned and properly installed in order to keep your home and family safe. Our professional dryer vent cleaning service removes clogs and debris, including lint, clothing, dryer sheets and bird and rodent nests, to restore proper ventilation of harmful carbon monoxide gases and prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
